8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
8 Verse 8. For every one that asketh receiveth] Prayer is always
heard after one manner or other. No soul can pray in vain that
prays as directed above. The truth and faithfulness of the Lord
Jesus are pledged for its success.-Ye SHALL receive-ye SHALL
find-it SHALL be opened. These words are as strongly binding on
the side of God, as thou shalt do no murder is on the side of man.
Bring Christ's word, and Christ's sacrifice with thee, and not one
of Heaven's blessings can be denied thee. See Clarke on Lu 11:9.
